Kylie Jenner Inspired Modern 90’s makeup look

Inspiration Picture:

Browny nude lips was an iconic trend of the 1990’s and Kylie Jenner seem to have brought back this trend! Everyone’s going crazy for it and I have to admit I am one of those people!

The standout factor of this look are the lips so everything else is pretty neutral and basic except for the lashes which just adds that extra ‘va va voom’ factor!

** ALL THE EYESHADOWS AND FACE PRODUCTS I USED ARE MATTE …this is an all matte look

The eyes are super basic…I tried to use avery neutral color palette unlike my usual warm shades.

~I primed my lid with Mac Painterly Paint Pot

~Then I mixed Mac Soft Brown and Wedge and dusted slightly over the lid and then put a wash on the outer crease as a transition shade

~I used Lorac Espresso to slightly deepen out the crease and outer corner…this is a very pigment dark neutral brown shade so you have to use a very light hand while using it because we want a subtle contour of the crease not too dramatic

~I used Lorac White on the brow bone and inner corner.

~Then I made a very thin line on the lash line and a slight wing

~Added mascara to my lashed and some dramatic falsies…I used the KoKo lashes in Risque

~I rimmed my waterline with a black eye pencil

~Slightly smoked the bottom lashline with soft brown and added mascara to the bottom lashes

FACE: 

CHANEL Matte Lumiere Foundation

MAC Prolongwear Concealer

BEN NYE Banana Powder to set and brighten the underye

CLARINS Splendours Bronzer for warming up the face (replacing the blush)

BENEFIT Hula Bronzer for contouring

LIPS:

now for the best part!

~I used AUSTRALIS Stay Put Lipliner in RAISIN to line my lips, fill them in and slightly over draw them so that they look fuller

~You can just use the lip liner and it still creates the perfect shade but I had to use my favorite lipstick MAC Velvet Teddy on top and I’ve heard that Kylie Jenner actually uses the same lipstick

Makeup of the Day: earthy fall/winter eyes!

earthy colors perfect for fall /winter

earthy colors perfect for fall /winter

We’re still stuck in winter here in the Southern Hemisphere and fall is fast approaching the North, so I thought why not do a fall/winter look today. I chose very earthy yet bright tones because the most intriguing part of fall for me are the rich hues of fallen leaves: fading olive greens, burgundies, vibrant yellows and oranges!

breakdown of the e/s I used

breakdown of the e/s I used

In the photo above, I’ve just pointed out the eyeshadows I used on each area just to make it easier to understand.

Lid: Mac Sumptuous Olive described as a shimmery golden khaki color. Any shimmery olive color would do.

Transition: Mac Soft Brown: a matte, warm, light to mid tone brown which is my go to transition color! Just can’t live without it!

Outer Crease: matte Ox-blood burgundy shade from the BH Cosmetics 26 Neutral Eyeshadow and Cheek Palette….pheww that’s a long name! Have been obsessed with this shade and been using it a lot this fall/winter!

Crease: the matte black and dark brown from the Sleek Storm Palette. I gotta say guys, this black is one of the most intense black I’ve come across. Beats Mac Carbon anyday. It is extremely pigmented and sooo black!

Browbone: Mac Brule which is just a matte off-white creamy color…this is also my go to matte browbone highlight.

Tear Duct: Mac Amber Lights….a shimmery peachy bronze….so beautiful!

Underneath I’ve used the burgundy color in the outer 2/3 and the inner third I used Sumptuous Olive and a little bit of Amber Lights coming down from the tear duct.

Eyeliner: Maybelline Eye Studio gel liner in blackest black – really good drugstore gel liner

Waterline: Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 001 Black – my new favourite !

Mascara: Maybelline the Falsies – cult favorite !

Falsies: Red Cherry false lashes….i’m really sorry I don’t have the number 😦 lost the actual packaging it came in.

REMEMBER blending is key !!! You can always use a soft transition color to tone down the burgundy or any bold crease color.

a different angle :)

less clear photo but I like the angle 😛

the whole face :D

the whole face 😀 – wasn’t wearing falsies then

Foundation: L’oreal Lumi Magique in W5 – just got this foundation recently and have been loving it so far!!

Powder: Chanel White Essentiel in 50 Beige Dore – rediscovered this powder and don’t know why it was stashed in my drawers….i love it!

Cheeks: Mac Ripe for Love blush LE from Temperature Rising collection

Bronzer: Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze

Highlight: Dior Amber Diamonds…..to die for!!!

Lips: Mac Ruby Woo – a cult favorite again!!

Till next time lovelies XO !
